Odometer Style Javascript Counter in Mootools

Posted · Category: MIT License, Stats

UvumiTools Odometer is an odometer style Javascript counter, where you can actually see the numbers spining. It is a Mootools plugin requires no Flash, it’s all CSS and Javascript. It can serve multiple purposes, like a live visit counter or a cashier style counter on a shopping website. It can be anything that involves updating a numeric value dynamically.

UvumiTools Odometer can be be updated manually or you can set it so it periodically calls a server script via an AJAX request and uses the returned value as a new target. This is also easy, you just need to specify the URL to that script when you initialize the counter. If the difference between two values is too big and the counter is spinning for several minutes. You can directly jump to the targeted value by simply double-clicking on the counter.


Requirements: Mootools 1.2+

    Arrgh, this mootools version is very slow.
    I tried to use their Go to: “2323232”
    and it made my ff3 unresponsive and crashed my browser.
